Former Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was barely recognizable at last month’s WhatsOnStage awards in London.

Sporting long, shaggy-looking hair and unkempt facial hair, Radcliffe looked nothing like the fresh-faced wizard from Hogwarts.

However, there is a reason for Radcliffe’s new appearance. He’s been wearing hair extensions for his upcoming role as Igor in the movie Frankenstein!

In a recent interview with the Telegraph, Radcliffe opened up about what it’s like to wear extensions on a daily basis.

"I don't mind how it looks, but I mind dealing with it," he said. "The amount of work it takes, having to dry it — doing anything to it is a f------ nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn't be growing my hair this long in my own time."
